Elias Adugna

 Elias Adugna, Adera’s In-Country Director, is the living example of a servant leader. He has a degree in Economics and his BSC in Health Services. He knows and understands his staff as well as those he serves and leads. He listens without judgement; he hears the plight of those under his care. He considers solutions that will meet long term results and not immediate crisis.  His “why” is his love and devotion to God! He is completely selfless in his day-to-day life. He is constantly researching and considering how to fill in the “gaps”for the families, children, and the staff of Adera Foundation. Elias is married to Dureti, spends his free time at home playing with his children, Ronel and Pelia; and helping around his home.
